Adventure Motorcycle Tours Helping Veterans with PTSD

 Unforgettable rides for veterans in scenic destinations around the US.

Published on 06.30.2016

Returning veterans suffering from PTSD or other invisible injuries now have a great option in recreational therapy. The non-profit Motorcycle Relief Project was formed to take veterans on multi-day motorcycle “Relief Rides” as a means of helping them decompress, connect with others who have had similar experiences, encounter nature and beauty, and learn valuable techniques for managing their injuries.

Participants will get to ride through incredible scenery both on and off the pavement. Rides will include carving the corners on some of the country’s most scenic paved roads, as well as backcountry riding on forest roads and moderate jeep trails. While not on the bikes, participants will have the chance to get to know one another, and learn practical ways for relaxing and managing trauma.

Participants get to ride on some of Colorado’s most scenic trails and two-lane roads.

Groups of up to eight veterans and at least two guides will have the use of a fleet of BMW adventure bikes but those that want to bring their own motorcycle are welcome to do so. Participants must have a valid motorcycle license and at least some off-road experience. Veterans must get themselves to the selected destination but once they arrive all meals and lodging, protective gear, insurance and a fully equipped support vehicle will be provided during the tour.
